Welcome to the Pediatric Interest Group!

The mission of Pediatric Interest Group (PedsIG/PIG) is to educate medical students about the science and art of pediatric medicine. This group will offer a place for students interested in pediatric medicine to learn more about what it means to be a pediatrician and what issues are present in the field. PedsIG will also allow students to foster relationships with like-minded peers, faculty members, and community physicians.
